Since the series first landed, I thought it was fantastic, absolutely hilarious and crammed full of surprises and in-jokes.

72 eps later, I would wish to see one change in the series: Nibbler substituted for a different creature (one NOT wearing a cape and a diaper, for starters).

That is what I'd change.

This goes to all who bothered to check out this topic: "What would YOU change?"

Leela wouldn't have let Fry fly the ship and go to prep the doomsday device herself in TKOS.

About the show itself?
 
About the only thing that springs to mind is that I'like to see stronger continuity between episodes. That is, less of a 'reset'.

Now, about the way F*x dealt with the show?
None of us will live long enough to hear the end of my answer...

I'd like to see more Zapp Brannigan.  Making a jackass of himself.  Strking out with chicks.  Being totally incompetent in his job.  You know, everything that makes him great...

I wish Futurama was a more realistic, down-to-earth show that was also completely off-the-wall and swarming with magic robots. That, or they should just add a new character.

I would have progressed the whole romance thing a lot slower. In other words the Fry and Leela love thing, also Kif and Amy wouldn't have got together...

Actually, I get the feeling that's how MG, DXC, et al wouldv'e liked to have done it, but for F*x' broadcast trying to "improve" the show.

I probably would've axed the Amy/Kif relationship.... I know it's nice and all, but they were better characters before hand.... if it were real life, I'd change my tune...

Fry would be skinny.  Not to the point of anorexia, though.  And Bender could rip on him about it.

I think you like "them" episodes more what up? because theres not a lot of them and when they come around MG and everyone else makes them special, If there were more then it would take the "special-ness" away from each episode. imo

All he has to do is pull out that shotgun more often.

Leela: "Professor, don't you remember what I told you!?!"

Professor: "NO!!!"

I think that's one of the funniest bits in the series; Bender getting repeatedly shot by the professor.  Or, Bender falling & landing hard; then saying "ow".

Fry less unexplainably moronic sometimes or Leela less bitch.... they were perfect in the first episodes and then writers begin sterotyping them to make cheap fun

They've changed the dynamic of the show by revealing how Nibbler can talk, and I enjoyed that. Why can't they have used BBS to at least get Fry and Leela dating in some capacity? The sexual tension that the show supposedly needs would still remain. Resolve that by marrying them in the end.

Problem is, once you cross that line, you can't go back.  Hopefully, they won't string us along forever...

   I agree with Xanfor. I like to see Fry and Leela start dating and at the very end of "it all", get married.

Fry and Leela should never, ever get together/married. Period. That would be the moment where the show jumps the shark for me.

That being said, I don't mind Kif and Amy being an on-off relationship. That being said, the ending of BWBB was good for me, as it kind of reset their relationship. The ending BWBB reset a whole lot of the show, allowing for Game and Green to go places that they couldn't have if they were tied down by the Kif/Amy marriage.

I actually would've liked more Cubert being a jackass and pointing out all the errors of the show. I enjoy metafiction and breaking the fourth wall, and Cubert would've been that vehicle.

I would remove 3 jokes from The Beast with a Billion Backs because they remind me of Family Guy (which I dislike very much).

The super hero that says "I'm so outta here!"

The talking part of medium giant ant. I like ant, just wish he wouldn't talk.

The King Kong joke.

1). I would make Fry less of a moron and keep his humor more in the vein of his 20th Century understanding clashing with 31st Century reality.

2). F@#!! the reset button.

3). Spin-off Zap and give him his own show.

I see what you mean but at least those jokes were in the same scene.
